Many reports state there is no good evidence that SSRIs and othe antidepressants are effective for those with ASD. Certinly I have tried about 30 and never found any that helped me. I wonder if anyone has found one that is helpful in depression ( when you have ASD)?
Hi, I personally have taken Citalopram on several occasions in the past and I have found it to be effective, both for Depression and for OCD. However, these medications do take about 6 weeks before they’re working fully as it takes a while for the level to build up in your system. Also, different medications work for different people, ASD or otherwise.
